We know that so many of our families have an immense amount of medical and therapeutic expenses on top of meeting their student’s educational needs. We take this into full consideration, and try to provide as much scholarship funding as possible to our families that need extra support. Our current scholarship fund can award up to 25% of tuition, based on need. In addition, all parents benefit from at least $14,000 in “tuition assistance,” as tuition only covers about 60% of our operational needs. The remaining amount is raised through our annual fundraising efforts and our generous network of donors, foundations, and corporations.
DISABILITIES DON’T DISCRIMINATE.
NEITHER DO WE.
The Arbor fills a unique niche for families with children with special needs. Out of the 22 special needs schools in Houston, we remain one of the only ones that will never turn away a student due to the severity of their diagnosis or perceived limitations. Having no niche is our niche! As a result, most of our students have very little in the way of alternative options for their developmental and educational needs, and The Arbor is proud to offer them and their families a place to learn and grow. The Arbor accepts students as young as 3 months old and continues the program through age 12.
We know that you have enough forms already, so we keep it simple! The Arbor does not require a formal evaluation prior to admission. After receiving your enrollment contract, The Arbor requires a $200 enrollment fee plus 25% down on the first month of your tuition. If necessary to determine appropriate placement, we will observe your student in their current educational environment at no additional charge. In the case that the classroom most appropriate for your student is full, you will be placed into a waiting pool and we will contact you as soon as there is availability.
Tuition can be paid annually or monthly.
